Description of 10-Yard Fight for NES

Advertisement
10-Yard Fight is a 1983 American football arcade game, developed and published in Japan by Irem and published in the United States by Taito.

The player does not select plays for either offense or defense. On offense, the player simply receives the ball upon the snap and either attempt to run with the quarterback, toss the ball to one of two running backs, or throw the ball to the one long distance receiver. On defense, the player chooses one of two players to control, and the computer manipulates the others. The ball can also be punted or a field goal can be attempted.

10-Yard Fight allows players to begin the game at one of five levels of difficulty; from easiest to most difficult: high school, college, professional, playoffs and Super Bowl. If the player won an "accelerated real time" 30-minute game at an easier level, the player advanced to the next level of difficulty.

The game has a top-down perspective and is vertical scrolling.

While graphically similar, there were some fundamental differences between the NES and arcade versions of the game. The arcade version only sought to simulate the offense, with the team attempting to score a touchdown, which would ultimately lead the player to the next level. The NES version was developed to allow both defense and offense, as well as a simultaneous 2-player mode. However, this mode is flawed in that the 2nd (red) player retains the AI cheats, giving him or her an unfair advantage.
